Document Table of Contents Frame Generator

The frame generator block supports the Interlaken protocol. The frame generator block takes the data from the transmitter FIFO and encapsulates the payload and burst/idle control words from the FPGA fabric with the framing layer’s control words, such as the synchronization word, scrambler state word, skip word, and diagnostic word, to form a metaframe. The Interlaken PHY IP core Parameter Editor allows you to set the metaframe length.
Note: The frame generator is used only in Interlaken configurations.
